Australia's cricket team will tour Zimbabwe for the first time in a decade to play a triangular one-day series that also will involve South Africa.

The tournament is likely to be scheduled for July or August, around the time South Africa was meant to visit its neighbour for a two-test and limited-overs series.

Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Peter Chingoka says the tournament will bring "financial relief" to the country's struggling board, which has been unable to play players over the last five months and seen its national squad go on strike in the buildup to next month's World Twenty20.

Australia last toured the southern African country in 2004 for a one-day series, which the Aussies won 3-0. Australia has since avoided visiting the politically troubled nation.
